The production company,”Silver screen Films” should concentrate spending on reaching out to a public audience as they are already in the business of producing masterpieces of prime film quality-G.R.E argument

"According to a recent report from our marketing department, fewer people attended movies produced by Silver Screen during the past year than in any other year. And yet the percentage of generally favorable comments by movie reviewers about specific Silver Screen movies actually increased during this period. Clearly, the contents of these reviews are not reaching enough of our prospective viewers; so the problem lies not with the quality of our movies but with the public's lack of awareness that movies of good quality are available. Silver Screen should therefore spend more of its budget next year on reaching the public through advertising and less on producing new movies."

 

All the Yes points

Yes because... No because...

All the wrong reasons

Great art can be enjoyed and loved by an illiterate pauper if it is truly great. Great art like great film-making draws the audience in breaking the fourth wall; the invisible barrier between the film and the people watching it.

Compromising on quality to appeal to cheap thrills when most people have access to enough dumb-movies is not very smart. It is condescending to people who are not art-educated but can intuitively/naturally be art-enthusiasts. One does not need to know what cubism means to relish in a Picasso. Ignorance of semantics does/can not alienate people from art. Art is inherently primitive , creative and something that drills into and sprouts from the very core of our being. It is as much a part of each and everyone of us as life itself. To claim that people who are not rehearsed in technical-jargon and stupidly pompous hauteur are unable to experience this innate human experience is an exact example of the latter.

The argument presented in the debate definition is relatively sound, however, the author fails to recognize all the elements necessary to evaluate his situation. The thought that more money be invested in advertising may be a helpful one, but perhaps not because people are unaware of the current reviews. To clarify, it may be necessary to advertise more in order to increase sales, however that could be due to many circumstances such as a decrease in the public's overall attendance, an increase in the cost of movies, or a lack of trust in the opinions of the reviewers.- [[paraphrased but mostly a direct quote from a G.R.E sample argument essay]]

Explicitly, the motivation behind propagating positive film reviews on silver screen movies cannot credibly be exposing the masses to supreme quality film but to increase ticket-sales-revenue. The reason that there is a niche market for films of this genre is because not every Tom,dick and Harry can appreciate or enjoy them. The films cater to an audience of connoisseurs who revel with delight understanding all the measures of art that make the film great. These qualified persons indulge their grimy fingers in the delicious meal of a apical-quality film, because they are trained to assimilate the elements that make these sort of films great.

Perhaps Silver screen should downgrade/dumb-down the content of its produce; making it commercial and therefore making films more accessible/enjoyable by the public if they want a larger audience.

It's all relative

The film industry is actually doing very well even now during and in the aftermath of the financial crisis.

"The advertising director first needs to determine the relative proportion of movie goers that choose to see Silver Screen films. That will help him to understand his market share. If the population in general is attending less, then he may still be out-profiting his competitors, despite his individual sales decrease. In fact, his relative sales could be increasing. Determining where he stands in his market will help him to create and implement an action plan."

Perhaps a fall in sales is a reflection of an overall precipitation/fluctuation in demand for all films not only films proceed by Silver screen productions. A fall in sales in comparison to last year, is an irrelevant stand alone value; it is meaningless without consideration top
the present economic health/welfare of the entire film industry.
